Front Beach is being reclaimed! And it's Chili Cook-Off Time!
You may have noticed by now, but the front beach area is finally being renewed after years of discussion, planning, engineering drawings, permits, and community discussion. The improvements will only seek to reclaim what once was. Erosion and time have been causing serious damage to that beach, carving away at the shoreline and changing a lot of things with it.
So, a timber groin will help to save the outgoing sand and a huge influx of new sand should all be in place by mid-February. It will be so great to have that back in shape.
In other news, the GIIA board is working on a capital improvement project list and budget with a new committee. This will help us all to keep better track of what needs upkeep and repair when even while board members rotate in and out.
Note to ALL residents: Please DO NOT use the dumpster at the beach in the winter season. There is no scheduled pick up and the trash sitting there attracts rodents and causes a mess.
Finally, the Glen Isle Ladies Auxiliary is hosting the awesome Chili Cook-Off event again this Februrary 4th. All GI residents are welcome to attend. Enter a chili for free, or pay a donation to be a taster and a voter! Indoor fun during the cold months. BYOB, all ages welcome. Contact Bonnie Gardner to enter, or just show up to be a taster. Cash only.
Do you have ideas for your neighborhood? Come share them at a GIIA Board meeting now held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, now at 7:00 PM again, in the Community Clubhouse on Pinecrest.
It's that time again...

Glen Isle History
"Beautiful Glen Isle on the South River," that's the way the early developer (circa 1923) described this waterfront community. He also used other superlatives to entice prospective buyers such as "...rich in the traditions of the former days; convenient to Annapolis, Baltimore and Washington; noted for its sandy beaches and traditionally the home of Black Beard the Pirate."
Our original tract of 138 acres was part of a much larger grant given to the second Lord Baltimore. Subsequently, this tract was sold to a Mr. Burgess from Baltimore and then to his son-in-law, Mr. Beard. For many years the property was known as Beard's Farm.
The northernmost part of the community beach (where the cattails are located) is officially called Beard's Point and can be found on most nautical charts of the area. Our main wharf was long used by ferry boats traveling to Annapolis and by commercial fisherman. The oyster shells lying on the beach are artifacts of this bygone era.
